HANAC Inc.

originally founded as the Hellenic American Neighborhood Action Committee

A New York City based multi-faceted social services organization with administrative offices at 49 West 45th Street in New York City. The organization was founded in 1972 to serve the needs of vulnerable populations throughout New York City. HANAC’s organization mission is:

To develop, implement and administer the operation of service programs for the betterment of the community
to provide these services to any and all who are needy without discrimination as to race, creed, national origin or other defining characteristic
and to work closely with other providers, the city, state and federal governments for the betterment of the community.

SUPPORT Our Causes

Donating to individual HANAC programs has never been so easy.
  1. Donation: $0.00 / $250000.00
    HANAC recognizes the importance of assisting people in our community in need of English language acquisition, a High School equivalency diploma, training and employment. You may ask this question: Why should I donate? There are many answers but the simplest one is to help HANAC continue fulfilling the mission we set out to accomplish back in 1971. Your fully tax deductible donations will help the thousands of disadvantaged and deserving individuals we serve yearly. For every stage of life, HANAC is there extending a hand. Unfortunately our funding from grants cannot support the overwhelming needs we face. You are helping that single mother gain the skills needed to obtain a job and support her family. That same single mother benefits from our free youth programs providing a safe and nurturing environment for her kids to go after school so she can work full time. The thousands of youth from underserved areas of NYC who receive services that level the playing field and offer opportunities that expose their talents and brighten their futures. That gift can help your elderly neighbor make it to life saving medical appointments, access to senior centers, the ability to stay in their home or access to affordable housing. As a nation of immigrants, your generosity can help us continue to assist immigrants in adjusting to and succeeding in their lives as new arrivals to America. So please, click below on an area of service you would like to support. Join the HANAC family today and donate to our community. They say “it takes a village." Your donation makes that village a reality.

Our IMPACT

The impact of HANAC’s services extends far beyond the 30,000 clients we serve annually. Each contact affects not only the life of the program participant but their family, friends, colleagues and co-workers.

The caregiver who is relieved, for a brief period of time from caretaking responsibilities, is a better spouse and parent by being given an opportunity to attend to other obligations or to enjoy free time.

The senior citizen who attends a senior center benefits from exercise, nutrition, socialization and the independence inherent in leading a full life. With increased independence these seniors are less dependent upon their own children for care and support thus freeing these younger adults to care for their families and be more productive at work.

Our Beacon Program and our after-school and summer youth programs support the growth of their young participants while enabling parents to attend to employment responsibilities knowing their children are safe. The employer benefits when the worker isn’t stressed by child safety concerns.

The individuals who seek help through our substance abuse prevention and treatment services and begin to change behavior patterns produce a ripple effect that brings positive change to families, friends and co-workers alike.

These examples merely touch the surface in illustrating the positive impact of HANAC’s programs and services on the lives of participants and their community.
